Tony!
I use it at Blue Diamond or any other bumpy track. I found that when I did not use it the card had way to much flex and the pinions/spurs were wearing out very fast. The chassis was also twisted in a weird way. Both myself and Tory saw the same twist in the chassis. Without the stiffener the car did have a little more traction.

Ohh the one that the two speed shaft goes through will not make a difference with the new style rear roll bar. With out the roll bar on the two bearing blocks there is no pressure.

Hi!

I just switch from S733TE to velox

I'm happy with that SMART SIMPLE CAR

So, question is, belts, I have set from S733, F, M and Rear, Can I use them?

Just asking

Or any replacement is possible? In case ?

Regards!
Michal
